Marked "BT1024" some time ago, this triple manhole cover now rocks and makes a gunshot sound each time lorries drive over it. As can be seen, hole in tarmac is Size 10 boot size! As the "gunshots" can be heard day and night some 260 metres away, could this triple manhole cover be secured asap please before it collapses.

  • Somebody (from BT?) has marked each loose manhole cover (all three) with a white X and (hand) placed some tarmac into the north (left in photo) hole - otherwise no change, still needs repairing.
